Need help to make adaptations to your own home?

As the National Body for Home Improvement Agencies Foundations provides a directory of local Home Improvement Agencies and a website to check how well your home meets your needs.

If you or someone you live with has a disability and is looking for help, these websites will help you to find where you can get help locally.

They also offer information about how to make your home safe and help you to find out if you are eligible for funding support from your local council.

If you require support accessing or using the websites or would like to know more you can contact us on: 0300 124 0315

You can also email us: [email protected]
